MINI Cooper Warning Lights: What Do They Mean?

MINI Cooper dashboard

With multiple MINI Cooper warning light symbols, Oakland drivers may be wondering what an illuminated light on their dashboard means. See if the warning light indicates an issue that needs repair at the East Bay MINI service center or if it is simply one of your vehicle’s advanced safety features. East Bay MINI has compiled a list of the most common MINI Cooper warning light meanings below.



Red MINI Cooper Warning Light

Red MINI Cooper warning lights typically indicate these main issues:

  • Approach Control Warning: This light warns you of a possible impending collision or if you are too close to the car directly in front of you.
  • Person Warning: If a potential collision with a pedestrian is detected, you will see this light on your dashboard and hear an audible alert.
  • Brake System: The light lets you know that there is a problem with your brakes. Drive with caution and set up an appointment at our service center as soon as you can.
  • Parking Brake: This light tells you that the parking brake is engaged. It will need to be released before you are able to once again drive the vehicle.

Orange MINI Cooper Warning Light

Orange MINI Cooper warning light symbols are usually part of the MINI Cooper safety and driver assist features:

  • Active Cruise Control: The number of bars illuminated let you know the distance level that has been pre-selected.
  • Vehicle Detection: Part of the Active Cruise Control System, you will see this symbol when the system recognizes a car ahead of your MINI Cooper. If the light flashes, there is a reason why the system is not functioning as it should.

Yellow MINI Cooper Warning Lights

  • Steering System: Have your vehicle inspected by a professional as soon as possible because a component of your steering system is malfunctioning.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System: Avoid braking suddenly if possible because the brake force boost may not be working. This requires immediate service.
  • Engine Light: The MINI Cooper yellow engine warning light lets you know that there is an issue with the emission system. If there is excessive engine misfiring, the light will begin to flash.
  • Tire Pressure Monitor: When you see this indicator, it usually means that you have one or more tire with low pressure. To fix this issue, all you need to do is ensure your tires are filled to the proper levels. If properly inflating your tires does not solve the problem, or if the light starts flashing, a system reset may be required.
